Try this intelligence test

This is actually really hard.

http://intelligence-test.net/part_4/

How many can you get?




If the URL wont work go to http://intelligence-test.net/

Add the /part_4/ -- This is HARDER THAN PART 1


Post #9 in this thread has the answers---Dont click it if you dont want to know!

Believe it or not, this type of test can be a good estimate of intelligence (if you excuse the cultural bias). People who did well on this type of test are likely those who are gifted with verbal ability and linguistic pattern recognition. This sort of assessment would discriminate against those with non-linguistic pattern recognition (like solving jigsaw puzzles) and spatial intelligence (like the ability to use a map or see hidden figures in a drawing).

I've only gotten 9 so far.

Not sure how this measures intelligence, but it's fun.

Looks more like a cell phone text messaging test.

Actually, I've seen this before. I'm no genius.

Not an intelligence test, just some association, and some are really terrible. Got most of them so far (16/18, I guess). Took me a while to figure out that
Spoiler:
H = Hollywood and P = Players (not people). No clue on 8 - lenses in a single pair of glasses? 18 is Temperature Scales, but I don't know what the M is.

Part 4- 7 out of 16

I guess since there's no time limit I'll keep working on it.

yeah, pretty sure this has nothing to do with measuring genius, maybe word/number associations, but some of them are just off the wall.

I'm going through the earlier ones now (thanks for the random underscore use in the URL, btw ), and the misuse of prepositions like "in" and "on" makes it annoying. Some of these are just silly. 13 is U F S? Sure, I got it, but it's like randomly guessing this dude's thoughts.

I only got seven. I'm a 'tard.

Don't answer that.

But I did get all the religious ones. And the one about beer. But they can't spell "dwarves" correctly. They suck.

That was my initial reaction, but then I did a google search and it's spelled "Dwarfs" in the movie title. Fucking Disney.

Got 15 of 'em. Some of those are just.....odd. Not an intelligence test, but entertaining for a couple minutes.

I got all eighteen of them. Some of my phrasing was a little off, but they matched the answer scale, except for one, which might be open for debate:

Spoiler:
I said the square root of -1 was an irrational number, the answer key says imaginary number.
